Thermometer was 95 degrees in the shade on Tuesday. The County Assessor has made his ap pearance in this vicinity. Sim Grim is in town this week with an extra load of choice articles. A shower of rain Tuesday evening did an immense amount of good. There is a young chap in Bannack who wears variegated socks, and bets on 'em. The placer mines along the Grassphoper are said to be turning out remarkably well. A. F. Wright returned from Idaho Tues day and reports 105 men working in Texas district. D. Lainont, cashier of the Dillon Na tional Bank, visited the "ancient capital" Tuesday. A number of prospectors are lighting flies and mosquitoes in Bald Mountain and Ëlk Horn mining districts. Geo.

Sfelasg* of the Argentiferous Cutup Condensed. Ti.ere are no vacant houses in Argenta this summer. James King is erecting a new house on his lot on Main street. Bali's furnace has suspended operations until the tirst of August. Will Jones and family, of Beaverhead, visited in town last Sunday. Recent reports tell of some rich diggings at the mouth of French creek. Work is still going on on the Daylight, belonging to Scott & Galigher. Mrs. A. J. Schumacher, of Butte, is visi ting her mother, Mrs. E. French. Masters Hugh Wales and Anthony French spent the Fourth in Butte. The Argenta cave appears to be a popu lar resort for a good many Dillonites. Messrs. White Je Behm have a lease on the Clipper, owned by Messrs. Dudley, Ross and Grubb. The weather was wanner during the past three or four days, than it was ever known to be before in Argenta. The Golden Era still continues to look well. They are running drifts at the 50 foot level and are still taking out the usual amount of ore. The Good Friday Co. has contracted to «ell all their ore to E. S. Ball. This pros pect still continues to look very encourag ing as it lias from tiie beginning. Times are quite lively at the Springs. Several new houses have been built and by this fall it is expected to have a town of its own, with several hundred inhabitants. The Rena Mining Co. is sinking a shaft to tap the vein at 100 leet. They en countered such large quantities of ore at 50 feet they found it necessary to run 3 shifts. An arrangement is reported as almost consumated by which wide-gauge coal cars from Wyoming will be transferred to the narrow-gauge track of the Utah and Northern road, supplying the northern market without re-handling. PICNIC AT GLENDAI.K. Musical School-main«, Fnterrified liy "t)n Kulatta," Have a High Old Time in Shady Glen. Oh no, 1 guess the Glendale folks didn't have a picnic, nor were they so unfortun ate as to be visited by some ferocious ani mal as were our Horse Prairie neighbors, Wild animals didn't dare come near—they fully understand that the Glendale people shoot, if they find any thing worth shoot ing at. But instead of frights and hideous apparitions, it was incessant pleasure, from the word go. Neither did we have to search the country to find a convenient spot, but just equipped ourselves, loaded with our good things, proceeded to march to Shady Glen, (adjacent our town and from which it takes its name) and a mer rier lot of children, middle aged and oid folks you wouldn't find in a day's ride. The procession was led by a patriotic youth from Indianapolis, who bore the stars and stripes, and such "volleys" of mu sic, as filled the air and made the oid hills resound with melodious strains couldn't be found in another day's ride. Ladies and gentlemen from indianap olis, a gentleman and his wife from Boston, students who are out for vacation from the Helena High School, school-mams from the state of Wisconsin, graduates from its State University, and indeed a crowd of which the stately trees under which they sheltered, acknowledged to each passing breeze the honor of being favored with the privilege of casting shadows for such a crowd. Were somewhat disappointed in not being favored with the presence of President Cleveland, who was officially de tained, and as Governor Hauser was ail ing, we were forced to be deprived of their company. But withal, we had a good time. To undertake to speak of all the good things provided for our table would be an endless task but to sum it up everything good was placed before us that the country affords— nice fragrant coffee, made by one of the schoolmams, was quaffed by all, the young gentlemen especially pronouncing it far excellence. The sumptuous repast was fol lowed by more music, and then music again, until the wee hours of the day waned away into twilight ere tire crowd began to disperse, all acknowledging it a day never to be forgotten. Picnic. TEXAS MINING DISTRICT. Bonding Mines—Items of News Concern. Ing tlie Silver Moon, Hoiiaiix.it, Sure Shot and latent Out. Mine. John McDonald and Kane Bros, have struck it rich in the Calumet. Phelan, Scott & Murphy have started up their mine and will put on men as fast as they can make room. Yearian & Co. have increased their force on the Silver Moon and Bonanza mines, and will start a night shift. McKillup Brothers have taken a con tract from the other partners—G. Coffin and A. D. Cartano—to sink the shaft in the Sure Shot to the ioo-fool level. C. D. Porter, a well known and reliable expert, has been in camp for several days examining the mines, and says the mines are second to none in the Territory for the amount of development done. Mr. Tracy a well known mining expert, has been in Bannister for the past three weeks experting and bonding mines. It is claimed that he represents one of the richest mining Arm« in the East, and it is hoped that he will succeed in his opera tions. Ed. Johnson is setting up his shingle mill and can furnish all demands in ten day's time. He is working a crew on the Latest Out Mine, which is looking better than heretofore. They have a ten foot vein of ore in the bottom of the shaft which is 140 feet deep. He intends putting on a force of men on the Alex. Stevens mine soon. FILLS FIELD'S FANCV. The old-line Whig when he read his New York Tribune felt assured that every line of it was- written by Horace Greeley himself so we presume that all the good things in Chicago .Vrrt .v are from the pen of Field. Now, here's a good thing from that journal about Sells Brothers' Circus. Eugene delights in sells and dotes on the circus, and is a clown and a good one, too. lie's a boss fun-maker, Sells ought to hire him. The News says : "It is a big show; it is a clean show; is a respectably-conducted show; it is good show. None of those rough, rowdy ish, tiresome or annoying features which usually accompany a large circus are present. The menagerie part is a treat, from its cleanliness the size and conven ience of the cages, and condition of the an imals. The visitor does not find a few worn-out specimens of ill-fed and mangy animals, so constantly exhibited as to be become as common as cows. AH the living things are well cared for, and are, either from their kind, their size or their nature, rarely seen in traveling shows." Sells Brothers' appointment for Dillon is Thursday, July 29. HAKING 1'OtVDEK TRAMPS. it a Trick of the Wily Fellows to Humbug Vnsuspectiig Housewives. The danger to the public health ironi the indiscriminate use of the many lime and alum baking powders of commerce lias been so fully exposed that everybody de sires to avoid them. As "forewarned is forearmed," housekeepers will thank us for apprising them of the special efforts at present being made to dispose ot such powders in this vicinity. The propritors of some of the worst oi these powders are going from bouse to house, trying by means of a trick, or so called test. « ith heat and water, to show that their article i' as good as the Royal Baking Powder, making the comparison with this brand because everybody recognizes it to be absolutely pure and wholesome, the object, of course, being to supply their own goods in place of the Royal, which housekeepers have for so many years relied upon to puff'up the morning biscuit, and to make the light, palatable and wholesome roll, cake and pastry for which it is famous. The housekeeper, will do well to be on her guard against these baking powder tramps. Every intelligent person knows that any goods peddled from house to house in that manner, or that are given away in samp'es, or sought to he intro duced bv secretly traducing the character of other goods well known to be pure and reliable, have no merits of their own. and have failed to find purchasers through le gitimate means. We are informed, as a matter of tact, that one of these tramps is trying to intro duce a powder that lias peen found by the Government chemist to contain 11.85 per cent lime, while the other peddles a powder that is 20 per cent alum—one a powerful caustic, the other a corrosive poison. No such tricks or jugglery will be apt to deceive any intelligent person. The housekeeper who has used her Royal Baking Powder ever since she discarded cream of tartar and soda, know« more about its qualities than all the tramps in the country can teach her. The crucial test to which she has put the Royal Baking Powder—the test of actual and successful work in the preparation of pure and whole some food, under which it has never failed—is entirely satisfactory to lier. She has always had "good luck" with it in making light, sweet and delicious bread, biscuit, and cake, and has placed it, to •tay, at the head of her housekeeping favorites. She knows that it has been officially approved by the Government chemists as the best, and we imagine that the baking powder tramp who attempts to supplant its place in her confidence will find this a bad year for his business. COMMITTEE MEETING. Meeting of the Territorial Democratic Cen ' tral Committee On Monday, duly 10th.
